Amaziah Reigns in Judah
i Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, j yet not with a whole heart.
And as soon as the royal power was firmly his, he killed his servants who had struck down the king his father.
But he did not put their children to death, according to what is written in the Law, in the Book of Moses, where the Lord commanded, k "Fathers shall not die because of their children, nor children die because of their fathers, but each one shall die for his own sin."

Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.
But everyone shall die for his own sin. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.
The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.
